About Wendy J Meyeroff

Wendy started her career as a reporter in the 1980s, becoming the managing editor of health care print—and then one of the first online—publications. She was quickly called-upon to be a reporter for some of the first online health news links. Wendy found she could not only write clinical materials but informative resources for the lay public too. Among her medical writing talents is a knack for deciphering complex information into "consumer-speak".

In 1988, Wendy founded WM Medical Communications as a way to segue her medical writing and editorial expertise into business-to-business and business-to-consumer marketing materials.
